History & Background (Dossier)
As sophont civilizations gain greater and greater mastery over volatiles and high energy physics, more capable weapons are developed. Typically very early energy weapons are developed in the TL:7-9 epoch including fuel-air explosives and very large nuclear weapons, which vastly outclass the atomic weapons of the TL:4-6 epoch.
By TL:10-12, Plasma Weaponry becomes viable and supplements lasers, particle beams, and other energy weapons. By the end of the epoch, the advanced PGMP-12 appears, which is extremely advanced for its time. Plasma weaponry continues to be refined and developed.
By the TL:13-15 epoch, the first fusion weapons begin to debut, which can project greater damage than the earlier plasma weapons. The FGMP series in increasingly refined as it goes from a bulky battle dress-only form down to sophont-wielded rifle-like form. As the materials technology and miniaturization improves, future fusion pistols will undoubtedly become viable.
